Is Coaching for you?
Take this FREE Energy Wellness Quiz & find out.

When people are able to take more control of their emotions, they can improve the quality of their energy, regardless of the external pressures they’re facing.

 

To do this, they first must become more aware of how they feel at various points during the workday and of the impact these emotions have on their effectiveness.

 

Your Energy Wellness refers to your body, your emotions, your mind, and your spirit.

YOUR BODY
  • I don’t regularly get at least seven to eight hours of sleep, and I often wake up feeling tired
     

  • I frequently skip breakfast, or I settle for something that isn’t nutritious
     

  • I don’t work out enough (meaning cardiovascular training at least three times a week)
     

  • I don’t take regular breaks during the day to truly renew and recharge, or I often eat lunch at my desk, if I eat at all

YOUR EMOTIONS
  • I frequently find myself feeling irritable, impatient, or anxious at work, especially when work is demanding
     

  • I don’t have enough time with my family and loved ones, and when I’m with them, I’m not always really with them
     

  • I have too little time for the activities that I most deeply enjoy
     

  • I don’t stop frequently enough to express my appreciation to others or to savor my accomplishment and blessings

YOUR MIND
  • I have difficulty focusing on one thing at a time, and I am easily distracted during the day, especially by e-mail.

  • I spend much of my day reacting to immediate crises and demands rather than focusing on activities with longer-term value and high leverage

  • I don’t take enough time for reflection, strategizing, and creative thinking.

  • I work in the evening or on weekends, and I almost never take an e-mail-free vacation.

YOUR SPIRIT
  • I don’t spend enough time at work doing what I do best and enjoy most
     

  • There are significant gaps between what I say is most important to me in life and how I actually allocate my time and energy
     

  • My decisions at work are more often influenced by external demands than by a strong, clear sense of my own purpose
     

  • I don’t invest enough time and energy in making positive difference to others or to the world

HOW DID YOU DO?

Unfortunately, without intermittent recovery, we’re not physiologically capable of sustaining highly positive emotions for long periods. Confronted with relentless demands and unexpected challenges, people tend to slip into negative emotions – the fight or flight mode – often multiple times in a day. They become irritable and impatient, or anxious and insecure. Such states of mind drain people’s energy and cause friction in their relationships. Fight-or-flight emotions also make it impossible to think clearly, logically, and reflectively.

 

When individual learn to recognize what kinds of events trigger their negative emotions, they gain greater capacity to take control of their reactions.
